At Tischer Acura, we love helping you find the best cars for the best deals, but we also care about your safety. A recent report from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) says “rearview cameras, soon to be standard on all new vehicles, can be expected to prevent nearly 1 in 6 police-reported backing crashes.” In light of this, Acura is already ahead of the pack, including the latest in-vehicle camera technology to help you maintain awareness of your surroundings and stay safe on the roads.* Take a look at some of the latest vehicle camera innovations from Acura:
Multi-View Rear Camera (pictured above)
As mentioned above, the rearview camera is not only vital, it’s soon to be a requirement in all vehicles. Luckily, the rearview camera from Acura is top of the line. Simply shift the vehicle into reverse, and the screen automatically displays the rearview video. Not only does it feature crystal clear, full-color video displayed on an in-dash, high-definition LCD screen, it also features colorful guidelines to help you gauge distances to objects in your path. Premium trim levels with the Technology Plus Package include dynamic guidelines, which can also move as the wheels are turned for greater accuracy when reversing at angles. What’s more, all new Acura models come standard with multiple angle options in the rearview camera: normal, top-down, and wide angle view.
Surround and Side View Cameras
Another great innovation is an array of miniature cameras built into the vehicle’s front and sides. In addition to the rear view mentioned above, drivers can switch to front or side views (pictured below), or a 360-degree view made possible by combining video from all sides for a top-down or birds-eye-view.
Not only do Acura models offer cutting-edge camera technology, but they also offer an array of high-tech active and passive safety features. Just like the cameras mentioned above, you really have to see them all to appreciate how far car safety has come over the years. We have many new models, all with a wide range of available features, so visit our showroom or contact us to schedule a test drive and experience it for yourself. Stay safe out there!
